My Cricut Craft Room - Card Creating Sunday

Happy Sunday!  I am so sad this holiday weekend is coming to an end.  I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving...I know I did.  Today I have a quick card to share with you...this will be my last non Christmas card until January.  I am so excited to create some fun projects for Christmas.  Today is Card Creating Sunday at My Cricut Craft Room...we actually had a choice of making a card or using Create A Critter, so I chose to do both.  My God Daughters birthday is coming up in December so I thought I would make a quick card for her.

I used Create A Critter along with the Imaine Pattern Cartridge Bubble Gum Stripes.
The sweet little lady bug is button 43 on the overlay and is cut at 3.3.  
I then flood filled her layers with three different patterns from Bubble Gum Stripes. 
I also used an image that is in the stock images on the is the second image and cut at 4.0.  This is also flood filled with a pattern from Bubble Gum Stripes. 

To finish my card I added some embroidery floss, brads, doodling and my sentiment is from My Pink Stamper - Sweet Baby.  This sentiment is so cute because it says Happy Birthday and there is a space left to add the year for ages 1 - 4.  So cute!

I hope you enjoyed my card today and have a great week!

My Cricut Craft Room - Would you guess Wednesday

Good morning crafters and welcome to Would you Guess Wednesday feartured at My Cricut Craft Room.  Our Design Team leader Erica challenges us to think outside the box on Wednesdays.  We are to create a project using only the Feature Keys on any cartridge...or we can create a paper project using a Cricut Cake Cartridge.  Did you know you can use any Cake Cartridge on any Cricut?

Today I decided to use only the Feature Keys on the Cricut cartridge Gypsy Wanderings (this is a preloaded cartridge that comes with the Gypsy).  This cartridge is great as it has a lot of seasonal images.  I created this A2 size card to send to one of my friends to let her know that I am Grateful for our friendship this Thanksgiving. 

For my card base I used Kraft cardstock as my base.  All of the other paper are from my scraps. 

Cricut Cuts:
I used the same Button on all of my cuts (button 28 on the overlay)
For the frame I used the Feature Key: Decor Tag <Shift>  cut at 3.5
For the phrase I used the Feature Key: Phrase/Shadow <Shift> Welded to Decor Tag, sized at 1.55
Feature Key: Phrase/Shadow - cut at 1.55
For the leaves I used the Featur Key: Border/Shadow <Shift> - cut at 1.24
Feature Key: Border/Shadow - cut at 1.24

Hope you enjoy and take a minute to think of the things in your life you are Grateful for today.
Please stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what other Wonderful projects were created.

Also check out Erica's preview day all day today at her webstore.
She is having a HUGE grand opening sale starting Thursday at 10:00 A.M. EST, but today she will be adding things to the store through out the day so you can preview what items will be available to purchase.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

My Cricut Craft Room - My Imagine-ation Monday

Happy Monday...It's Thanksgiving week.  Is everyone ready for yummy food and spending time with family?  I am super excited for the short work week!  For today's project I am feartured on My Cricut Craft Room's My Imagine-ation Monday.  I created this plaqure for Thanksgiving.  This is the first Home Decor project I made and really love how it turned out.

For the plaque I used a foam board that was in my husbands Nook packaging as extra filling.  I love finding ways to reuse packaging like this.

Cartridge Cuts:
Create A Critter - Button 47 on overlay including all three layers, cut at 3.5
Storybook - Feature Key Shorty/Holes <Shift>, button 40 on overlay, cut at 4.5
Holiday Cakes - Feature Font <Shift>, button 46 on overyay, cut at 1.5
Imagine Better Together - Images flood filled  with patterns on pages 38,40, & 42

I embossed using the Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots embossing folder and added some ribbon to complete my Happy Thanksgiving plaque.

I hope you enjoyed my project.

My Cricut Craft Room - My Imagine-ation Monday

Happy Monday I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  This past weekend was the 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop hosted by Erica at My Cricut Craft Room.  I want to say Thank you to everyone that left such sweet comments.  I had fun reading them all weekend. 

Today is My Imagine-ation Monday hosted by My Cricut Craft Room.
Monday's are all about the Cricut Imagine at My Cricut Craft Room.  I used two Imagine Cartridges for the card I created today, Baby Boutique and Imagine More.  This is an A2 size card (5.5 x 4.25), the base of my card and the green layer was some cardstock I had in my scraps. 

The scallaped rectange is one of the stock images that come programmed in the Imagine. 
This was cut at 4.0 and flood filled with a pattern from Imagin More (Pg 44) 
The framed tree is from Baby Boutique (Pg 33 ) cut at 2.7. 
I inked the edges of the frame with ColorBox Petal Point Ink (Amber). 
Blessing is also from Baby Boutique (Pg 13 ) cut at 1.2.

Hope you liked my quick and easy card today.
Please head on over to My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other Design Team members created today.

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge Hop

Happy Saturday!

Thank you for joining us today for Day One of My Cricut Craft Room's November 100 Cartridge Blog Hop. You should have hopped to me from the super sweet and talented Madison ...if you just came across my blog and would like to start at the beginning of the hop please go to My Cricut Craft Room. I have two projects for you today using the three cartridges I chose to use this month...Kate's Kitchen (Imagine), Hannah Montana, and Sweethearts (I also ended up using a Font cartridge Jasmine). 
Now on to my first project. 

I created this card for my nephew who is turning 9.  I used Patterns/Colors from Kate's Kitchen and believe it or not Hannah Montana. (I have to tell you I was not interested in the Hannah Montana cartridge until I really looked at it. There are a total of five different fonts and two shadow fonts on this one cartridge and some really great images)  I also wanted to show that this cartridge is not just for girls since it is Hannah Montana. :)
Paper: Bazzill Basics (White), Recollections (Silver), The Paper Co (Ice Cream Social)
A2 Embossing Folder: QuicKutz (Rings)
Stamps: My Creative Time's (Many Greetings)
Pen: Zig Memory Makers (Pure Black)

For my second project I did a double page 12x12 scrapbook layout. 
On these Layouts I used Sweethearts and Jasmine Cricut Cartridges.

I have been wanting to get my wedding album completed so I have been signing up for Scrapbook Saturday's on My Cricut Craft Room. This has really helped me stay motivated. :) Since the Blog Hop is on Saturday I wanted to post my LO's today as well. If you would like to see my other wedding album LO's I have completed please go to my Labels and look under Scrapbook Saturday's.

Paper: Paper Boutique, Coredinations Foundations (Hot Pink & Coffee)
Queen & Co: Irridescent Rhinestones
Stickles: Frosted Lace

My Cricut Craft Room - Would you guess Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween.  Can you believe it is already November?  I sure can't.  Before we know it, it will be Christmas.  So exciting!  Anywho on to my creation today.  Today is my favorite day to design at My Cricut Craft Room as it challenges me to think outside of the main buttons on the cartridges. :)  This day the Design Team is challenged to use any Feature Image on any cartridge of our choosing...we are not supposed to use the main image.  I have found some amazing images and I am always looking at the extra features now. :)

Using my Gypsy I found the base card using the card feature on A Child's Year, Button 21 on the overlay, cut at 5.5 so it will fit in a standard A2 size envelope.  The flower image can be found on Straight from the Nest in the border feature, button 14 on the overlay, cut at 2.65.  Then press shift and the same button to cut the flower petals.  I finished off my card with some rhinestones, ribbon, and of course stickles.  My sentiment on the bottom right is from My Creative Time - Many Greetings.  This is a must have stamp set in my opinion.  Love it!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have been inspired to look at those feature keys. :)  Please go to My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other wonderful Design Team members created today.
